Saint status

I believe that this Metropolitan is the same one commemorated on January 26 as a saint, since he is included in the online version of the Great Synaxaristes in the Greek for that day, and his repose is mentioned on two other Russian Orthodox Calendars for that day as well (see below):

  • Gabriel of Novgorod and St. Petersburg, Metropolitan (†1801), January 26
  • Great Synaxaristes: (Greek)
Ὁ Ἅγιος Γαβριὴλ Μητροπολίτης Νόβγκοροντ καὶ Ἁγίας Πετρούπολης. 26 Ιανουαρίου. ΜΕΓΑΣ ΣΥΝΑΞΑΡΙΣΤΗΣ.

Thus, on the Gabriel (disambiguation) page I propose that he be listed in the "Saints" section. Angellight 888 10:24, January 21, 2012 (HST)

I have no problem with your proposal - keeping track with all the versions is difficult and we need this kind of cross checking.Wsk 10:36, January 21, 2012 (HST)
